Happy Friday!

I'll try not to be so chatty and get to the point.

Broad Purpose: I need to find a comparable mission/vision statement for
a multipurpose Media unit which includes: processing and circulating
Media, Reserves, Newspapers & Periodicals. =20

Narrower Purpose: the mission/vision statement also addresses
programming or some form of instructional support using media related
resources.

I would greatly appreciate it if you were to reply to me offline, or
point me to several university/college web pages.

This is what I have so far for my own institution, but perhaps there are
areas that I'm overlooking.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
